Hammock Gear Top Quilts
Hammock Gear makes some of the highest quality lightweight down top quilts for hammockers and ground dwellers available anywhere. We take pride in our materials, craftsmanship and customer service.
All quilts are made to order. Please inquire with firstname.lastname@example.org for current lead times.
All of our quilts ship with a 24" x 36" Storage Sack and Stuff Sack for backpacking.
About the Burrow 20˚
The Burrow works for both hammockers and ground-dwellers alike. It is a lightweight sleeping quilt that takes the insulation of a traditional sleeping bag and puts it all on the top and sides, leaving the back (which insulation is compressed and unusable anyway) open. Many hammockers use top quilts in lieu of a traditional sleeping bag because they are easier to slide into when it's time to sleep.The Burrow is designed with a half taper, foot box and a cinched top. Comes complete with a stuff sack.
The 20° Burrow is the perfect solution for staying warm in a hammock. With a conservative rating of 20°F, and filled with premium quality, water resistant, 850 fill-power Hungarian goose down, it will keep you warm during colder seasons.
Top Quilt Advantages
Having found the Hammock Gear website, chances are you are aware of some of the advantages of top quilts. Their growing popularity, with both the hammock crowd and ground dwellers alike, is due to their function and versatility, especially as compared to traditional mummy-style sleeping bags. Some of these advantages include:
|Fill Weight||11.3 oz||12.0 oz||12.7 oz||12.4 oz||13.2 oz||14.0 oz|
|Total Weight||17.84 oz||18.66 oz||19.31 oz||19.51 oz||20.34 oz||22.03 oz|
*Indicated lengths are for Snap closure Burrows when they are snapped and cinched closed. Burrows that are unsnapped and open are approximately 4" longer than above. Burrows with sewn footboxes are approximately the same length as shown. The standard model is designed to fit persons up to 6' tall.
We utilize the finest 850 fill power, water-resistant goose down on the market in all of our quilts. It is tested and certified by the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory.
All Hammock Gear quilts are made of ARGON fabric. All ARGON fabric is specifically designed ripstop nylon which is manufactured for Hammock Gear. We offer both 10 and 15 denier weights with certain colors only available in one or the other. ARGON 67 (10d) weighs 0.67oz/square yard while ARGON 90 (15d) weighs 0.90 oz/square yard. It has a Durable Water Resistant (DWR) finish. The DWR not only improves the water resistance of ARGON , it also enhances the fabric by improving overall strength, tightening the weave and thus increasing its down-proofness. Calendaring of the fabric further enhances the down-proofness of the quilt.
All of our quilts (except the Burrow 50) make use of baffle (also known as "box baffle") construction. This means that the seams between the down-filled chambers are not sewn through, but instead consist of a fabric wall about .75 to 3 inches tall, depending on the model. The Burrow 50, the lightest of our Top Quilts, uses sewn-through construction.
At Hammock Gear, we use temperature ratings which are very conservative. Compare them in the marketplace and you will agree. Here is a point we wish to emphasize: the first and most important step you must take when choosing a quilt by temperature is to Know Thyself. Are you a Cold sleeper, a Warm sleeper, or maybe a Really Warm sleeper? Factor this into your selection process and you will be much better off.
Two options are available: Sewn footbox or Snap Footbox. The sewn option is a permanent footbox approximately 20 inches long, measured from the bottom. A sewn footbox is fully enclosed/fully insulated, and thus allows no cold spots. It is recommended for 0° - 20° temps. The Snap version allows the quilt to be fully opened and to lie flat. 5 snaps are used. It is recommended for temps above 20°. When closed the snap version, which has a drawcord closure, has an opening of approximately one inch. Some users, depending on conditions/temps, will use a clothing item or small piece of foam pad to plug this hole. Many HG customers enjoy using their quilts in the home, and love the versatility of using the quilt “blanket style” or as a “throw”, and the snap version fits the bill.
Select your choice of exterior color from our current stock. The color of the interior fabric is your choice of black or charcoal gray.
Our top quilts are built with a standard Half-Taper design. Custom work is available if you have different requirements.
Quilts come standard with attachment cord loops (these can be omitted by request).

I was thoroughly impressed, but not surprised by the quality of this item. The only reason I say this is because I already own an incubator 20 which surprised me when delivered. I have slept on the ground once with this TQ and a 3.7 R value pad. The temps dipped into the mid 20s and I was as comfortable as could be with a mid weight base layer. I'm a cold sleeper so I was pleasantly surprised by this. I've also only slept hanging once. Used both the incubator and burrow 20s with a lightweight base layer. Temps were mid 30s and I was even more comfortable than on the ground. All in all, hammock gear makes great products that deliver exactly what they state. Thank you for the excellent pieces!
by Benson Burner – 14th Mar 2017
Love my custom burrow. So puffy, so comfy, I do so enjoy digging into it while on top of the incubator, snug as a bug!!
by Unknown – 13th Mar 2017
A sleeping bag in a hammock is a hassle but the burrow makes it easy and With my underquilt, I slept like a baby <32
by Bob V – 3rd Mar 2017
Another Awesome product from HG.
What can I say top quality lightweight and very warm.
I have the HG 20* Incubator and the 20* Burrow to compliment it. These are very light and super warm quality is top notch.
I also have the Cuben fiber standard tarp with doors from HG same deal a 10 on quality and customer service.
I can't recommend them enough.

Hammock Gear has great people to talk to, some of the finest materials available, high performing designs, and amazing craftsmanship, few would argue this. But their NEW Burrow design (let's call it the 2.0) is about as close to perfection as you can get.
You have to ask for the "new Burrow design". And what you get is some minor but great adjustments to their original Burrow design. What they have done is gone with baffle tubes that go in different directions. The foot box has horizontal baffle tubes which switch to vertical baffle tubes from the footbox to the head, finishing with a final horizontal baffle tube at the head end.
So what does that get me? I have found that loft is maximised through use and the down stays where you want it. In the main section over your torsoe and upper legs, being vertical keeps the down and loft right over your core. You have no settling of down off your core down to the sides. Yet at the foot box horizontal allows you to move down all around the top and sides. Even their sewn in circular bottom of the foot box is baffled. Finally, I really like how they switch back to horizontal at the head end, which creates a nice continuous cushion for your neck, instead being rows of baffles.
Whether you choose Argon 67 or 90, that material is super light, yet tough, and gives a silky feel to it. The NoSeeUm baffles makes the quilting feel like it has nothing there and allows the quilt to feel light and super soft. You will stare at their craftsmanship, and wonder how they hid all of the seams. I've only used it to 40° so far, but was very surprised that I can use it in my house (~70°). I did 2 ounces of overfill and suspect it would go to 10°, which makes it more impressive how comfy it is at inside temperatures.
I just stuff it straight into the bottom of my ZPacks Arc Haul into my dry bag, and as I stuff the rest of my gear, I've noticed that it compresses down with the HG Incubator 20° to about half the volume that my ClimaShield quilts did. This quilt calls my name and I look forward to slipping into it at the end of the day.
If you have been on the fence, I would not hesitate to purchase this quilt (in fact I ordered another one). They are a pleasure to talk to, use great materials, have high performing designs, and their craftsmanship is second to none! Be sure to ask for the new Burrow design and you will not be disappointed. For a look-see of this new design check out sector seven and another great Shug's video: https://youtu.be/xrGfSgt1w2E
by Eric J – 26th Feb 2017
I own both the Burrow 20 (wide + snap foot-box) and the Incubator 20 (+2 oz over-fill) and they are both extremely comfortable and very warm. I have only experimented indoors so far, but I am absolutely certain that I'll be warm during my early spring and mid-summer camping trips in Ontario, Canada.
I am so pleased with both that I have ordered the Phoenix 40 with an extra ounce of over-fill as a lighter weight option as a gift for a friend..
Love them all. Thanks HammockGear
by Hills_Hiker – 19th Feb 2017
I love this top quilt! Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail make this my favorite piece of gear. The sewn foot box is awesome and I get nice and comfy real quick in my Warbonnet Blackbird XLC very well. I love the cinch cord on the top and I draw it somewhat taut and just tuck my head underneath it instead of snapping the button around my neck. The excess shockcord when you do this needs a place to tuck away so be aware that you will have some string around your head area; I wish there was a small pouch to stuff this in to although that is a minor inconvenience and I am using the cord contrary to its purpose as it tucks inside the TQ where I have my head (if I used it as designed, it wouldn't be a bother to me whatsoever. It stays put all night and is very soft and quiet; no crinkly or stiff feeling AT ALL! Bravo, HG!!!

Excellent craftsmanshipand design.
by Tom Smith – 7th Feb 2017
Good service and product came as advertised. Extremely lightweight. We plan to pair it with a Thermarest neoair xlite for ground/shelter sleeping on the AT. It fits great with our new ultralight gear.
by Charlie Norton – 6th Feb 2017
Finally got to test out my Burrow & Incubator 20's this past weekend on the AT near Spring Mtn shelter above Hot Springs NC. I couldn't of ask for anymore for the 1st test. Temp got down to 26 with a 25-30 mph gusting wind till about 3 AM. Clouds moved in and then came the sleet and a few snow flurries. I was very skeptical about staying warm. Laid down wearing base-layer, insulated pants and down jacket but quickly shed the down jacket and insulated pants. HG CF tarps and Quilts are well worth the money and the pounds of pack weight loss is a great bonus. Looking forward to getting Burrow 50 and maybe a Custom Pheonix 50 this summer. Thanks HG!
by Matt Brown – 31st Jan 2017
I have purchased products from several of the cottage vendors, but always find myself coming back to Hammockgear. My burrow is one of my favorite pieces of kit. The craftmanship and service you get from Hammockgear is among the best. If you are deciding between a Burrow and something else. Pick the Burrow. You'll be glad you did.
by Unknown – 27th Jan 2017
This ultralight product will take your current base weight a pound or two down (Which is a lot when you already have an ultralight kit). I took it on my previous prep hike for the AT, and half way through my hike I thought I had forgotten my quilt. I cannot recommend this product enough to anyone who wants to shed easy pounds on their base weight.
by Mick Graham – 25th Jan 2017
Thank you for your fantastic customer service . I am in the UK and your e mails were reassuring. The Burrow 20 degree top quilt is a quality product. I used it camping in the Piney Piney Woods (thanks Shug) last Sunday. I was toasty warm in the Burrow despite the snow and ice. Comfortable to sleep in and the draw cord round the top kept my shoulders warm. One day all sleeping bags will be like this. Lighter than my Rab Ascent 500 and packs down to about half the size. Fantastic. The customs duty was a bit steep £80. in all but I love the quilt Thanks!
by Unknown – 21st Jan 2017
Bought this quilt for my brother for Christmas. Fortunately we had temps down to the single digits. He said the bad took him down to 15° before he had to add his booster bag. The bag is a perfect fit. We got the wide, long bag due to him being 6'3" 270lbs. This bag convinced me to purchase one for myself! Great work guys! GO BUCKS!
by Gary D – 10th Jan 2017
I love it! I have been waiting to get a down overguilt for some time and now I have the best. The stitching is flawless, it comes with its own stuff sack and also a larger storage bag so that it can relax when stored for longer times, like at home. I picked purple as one of the colors and I really like it. I actually haven't used it yet so I can't say anything on its temperature rating. I would recommend that you put some paraffin or candle wax on all the snaps when you get it to make them easy to unsnap. I learned this a long time ago to help reduce pullout.
by Mike V – 1st Jan 2017
I got the burrow 20 with 2 oz of overfill and the sewn footboy for Christmas. I slept in it in conjunction with my incubator 20 a few days later. It got down to 19F that night and I was toasty warm the whole time. I look forward to using it in the woods and I would recommend it to others. Keep up the good work Hammockgear!
by Fred – 23rd Dec 2016
Received my Burrow 20 with 2 ounces overstuff, regular length, wide width, and snap foot box. On my scale, it weighs 22.89 ounces in the stuff sack which seems to be spot on with the website specifications.
The quality is impeccable, and I can't wait to try it out after the holidays. I ordered mine with cinnamon brown outside and black inside, which matches my Incubator 20.
I have no doubt that I will be toasty warm!
by Jim – 15th Dec 2016
My 20f burrow is hardly that because of the cold spots. The down shifts to the sides, and I am left with not much down in the most important areas. I have never had this issue with the other down products I've had.
The weight is to spec per the site, so it's not that. The fill to baffle size ratio seems to just allow the down to constantly move around.
Hammock Gear response:
Hello Jim, please contact us at email@example.com about your quilt. We'd be happy to take a look at it for you, as there could be a fill issue. We hope we can resolve this for you.
by David R – 14th Dec 2016
Working with the Hammock Gear team is a great experience. It is very well stitched and the sewn foot boot is strong. I took it out a few times and tested it down as low as 7 degrees, with a parka wrapped around the footbox and I was warm. The quilt has a very clean and sharp look. I like my design and the ability to choose the colors just lets you match it with you gear. Thank you Hammock Gear.
by Chet (Riverat on HammockForums) – 12th Dec 2016
Could not be more satisfied with the product and the service. The Burrow 20 shipped out on exactly the day I was told it would. I was very impressed with the quality of the item. Does not appear to be any shortcuts taken here. I used the Burrow 20 w/ 2 oz. overstuff on an overnighter in tandem with a "big box store" underquilt that i bought several months ago because I made an uneducated decision (Already ordered an Incubator 20 to replace it). The outside temp low was 31 degrees Fahrenheit and the high temp inside the Burrow 20 was 91 degrees, but it pretty much stayed around 88 constant. I had a lightweight Minus 33 wool base layer, a loose fitting pair of wool socks and wool watch cap. If your on the fence about spending the money for one of these, just do it. These are made for hammock campers by hammock campers and life is to short to be cold. Thank you to all the fine folks at Hammock Gear for providing a great product made in the U.S.A.,!
by Cindy Liles – 30th Nov 2016
Very well made. I love the colors too!!! I can't wait to use it!!
by Unknown – 30th Nov 2016
I have a sleeping bag that weighs 3 times this amount that isn't this warm! I'm 6 foot, broad shouldered guy and the regular size fit perfectly around my shoulders and feet. In combo with an underquilt there is nothing better. Highly recommend.
by Phil – 24th Nov 2016
Ordered the burrow 20 during a sale. Received it within 2 weeks from the order. Took it out about a week after receiving it. First night it only got down to 50, then the weather took a turn for the worse the next morning woke up to snow on the ground upper 20's, I was so warm I didn't want to get out of the hammock. I also have a HG 20 top quilt that complements this underquilt, which is also a great product.
by john – 22nd Nov 2016
I used this with an incubator 20 and it kept me warm through a night in the mid twenties at 3500ft during a severe wind alert. There were wind gusts up to 60mph happening pretty frequently and I was doing alright in my down fortress.
The build quality is superb!
by P. Kelly – 15th Nov 2016
I used my new 20 F Burrow along with the 20 F Incubator this past weekend and was very impressed. I am a cold sleeper and was warm all night long. I wore a hat and long underwear with socks .On Friday night the lows got to 24 F and on Saturday night the low got to 25 F with the "feels like" temperatures on both night getting into the middle teens. With traditional sleeping bags I typically have to purchase an EN rating of at least 10 F below what I think the lowest temperature is going to be, but the Hammock Gear insulation was dead on. I highly recommend them.
by David – 10th Nov 2016
I'm a ground dweller and sleep warm.
This is my first quilt and I was a little doubtful that it would keep we as warm as full zip, similarly rated, bag. I'm a "busy" sleeper and was also concerned I would toss out of my coverage.
After a month trekking in autumn at high elevation, I never had an issue with either.
My only suggestion (and I'm sure minimalist will disagree) - I wish it had a small pocket at the top. I've come accustomed to having a small stow for a headlamp, keys, whatever you might need in the night without fumbling around.
by Hunt – 9th Nov 2016
So glad I was recommended this piece of gear by a friend. I'm 6 ft 2 in and got the wide and long version of the quilt. I probably could've fit a smaller size but wanted to be safe and go big or go home. I love this quilt and will continue to spread the word.
by Faison – 6th Nov 2016
Great quality and super lightweight. Thanks HG
by Bill – 2nd Nov 2016
Just ordered the Burrow 20 and it arrived in less than a week. I haven't had time to get it out in the woods since it just arrived, but we are planning to trips in the next few weeks. I did set my hammock up in the back yard and used my new incubator 20 under quilt and the burrow 20 top quilt for about an hour. Construction is top notch. I know I'm gonna love it.
by Andrew Benson – 28th Oct 2016
This is my second one. I've got a 40 with snaps and a 20 sewn footbox. I live in my 40, it's just amazing.
If you're in the verge, just do it. It's one of those things that you will have the rest of your life.
The craftsmanship and customer service is second to none.
by mark – 20th Oct 2016
got my 20 degree burrow, and it is an awesome quilt , id swear its custom made just for me.
by David Cader – 18th Oct 2016
I recently took this quilt on a six night backpacking trip in northern Ontario. Based on reviews I expected this quilt to deliver and I have to say that it met all of my high expectations. This is a great piece of gear.
I was expecting the weather to be around 5 degrees Celsius at night, but we had a warm spell and this quilt was almost too warm ... not often you wish for cold weather!
I am so happy that I no longer have to struggle into a mummy bag when using my hammock.
by Gottabyke – 10th Oct 2016
Quality and craftsmanship is second to none. Very conservatively rated. First night out was 28 degrees F and I was toasty warm. I would say that I could easily take this down to 0 degrees F or lower. Turnaround was about 2 weeks and customer service was excellent.
by Jay – 9th Oct 2016
Spent 4 days and 3 nights on the Teton Crest Trail in September. First night was in the 20s and this was my first experience using a quilt instead of my sleeping bag. Went to sleep with my down jacket on and woke up sweating. By the third night I was completely comfortable with my sleep system. Stayed nice and warm through the night and didn't even realize it was snowing all night. Woke up in upper Cascade Canyon under 5 inches of snow.
Would highly recommend this quilt to anyone looking to get the best value for your dollar. To top it all off, the service from the company is the best, quick answers to all my questions and very happy with the quality of the product.
Burrow 20 w/ 2oz overfill and Ground Pad attachment kit (highly recommend also)
NeoAir xTherm Sleeping Pad
by Michael Wells – 6th Oct 2016
First experience with a quilt (vs. a sleeping bag). First night in tent the temp unexpectedly dipped below freezing with a snowstorm (after a daytime high of over 100!). I was very comfortable while tent mates were struggling. I was slightly concerned about the quilt concept in advance but it works really well for me, giving much more freedom than a sleeping bag, an astonishing amount of warmth given the light weight and it doesn't slip off. I'm 6' 5" tall and was pleased to find the quilt long enough. The Hammock Gear Pillow seems less useful (too small, not enough cushioning) and I haven't yet figured out the Ground Pad Attachment Kit which I probably won't need.
by Tom Pittman – 5th Oct 2016
This Quilt has performed exactly as expected, the build quality is good as well. I think that it would be hard to find a better light sleeping option for the price, unless you have skill in making your own gear.
by Jake Snider – 1st Oct 2016
I've spent probably 15 or so nights in this bag so far. Most of those nights were August in Alaska, and the last few in the upper peninsula of Michigan in late September. In the night-time temperature ranges of 40's-60's this bag has been warm enough. The versatility of being able to buckle it into a half bag or open it up all the way has made for comfortable sleeping in this range of temperatures. The build quality seems great. It seems tough enough that it will be durable if taken care of. All stitching seems solid and I haven't seen any leaking down. I ordered the extra long , extra wide with no taper and its basically like a huge comfortable comforter that still packs down small and very light. It's exactly what I wanted for my sleep system. I emailed customer service and asked if they could rush me an order in time for an Alaska trip. They got it to me in about 4 weeks in plenty of time for my trip. They were the only company willing to work with me on this and I appreciate that greatly. They seem like a quality company, I would highly recommend them.
by Bruce Ferguson – 29th Sep 2016
I bought a Burrow 20 and an Incubator 20 for winter camping in the south and high altitude camping in the Rockies. I recently took a week-long training course that had us hiking the continental divide in Colorado. Temps in the high 20's most nights. Even on the night that it went to 19 I slept in socks pants and a thin shirt. I had to pull my arms out a few times because I was getting too warm. I think I slept warmer and more comfortably than anyone else, groundhog or hanger, in the whole group. We had a "circle stretch" one morning where you had to lead a stretch and tell your favorite piece of gear. I said " I have three because they make one system; my Warbonnet Blackbird, my Hammock Gear Burrow, and my Hammock gear Incubator"
by Dave – 23rd Sep 2016
Great TQ. Ordered it the day they moved office locations. And then even changed my order slightly after placing it. HG guys were awesome, changed up my order mid stream, shipped it extremely fast, around 10 days, and had it arrive super fast. Great quilt. Will definitely order another one for other family members.
by Unknown – 6th Sep 2016
Definitely a quality product. I ended up getting the extra long and wide version based on Hammock Gear's recommendations in the frequently asked questions section. I am definitely a quilt convert. I haven't had in cold temps yet but in 40 degrees I slept in it with just my breifs quite comfortably. I would definitely recommend the chord system they offer to help keep the quilt snug around you. I am an active sleeper and they made the difference for me. Plus I can see how in cold weather they would be invaluable.
by Ryan Vorisek – 4th Sep 2016
Finally pulled the trigger on a high quality sleep system, and love it. Paired this with a 0deg Incubator, and was toasty all night. I'm a fairly cold sleeper, so it was nice not waking up every couple hours to readjust because I was cold. Glad to support our cottage vendors!
by JD – 4th Sep 2016
Super warm for its weight, packs down small. The Hammock Gear team did an impressive job building my order and getting to me in time for my trip to King's Canyon National Park. Fantastic company who I will be recommending to all my backpacking friends.
by Unknown – 2nd Sep 2016
It's great to buy a high quality product that is made local. Very light and warm. Doesn't get any better
by Unknown – 25th Aug 2016
It hasn't been cold enough to try out my new winter quilt yet but throwing it on on the bed in the air conditioning feels amazing! The workmanship is truly great and inspires me with the confidence that this will be an important part of my fall and winter kit, in combination with my matching 0 incubator that will be here tomorrow! That being said, I am most impressed by the customer service at Hammock Gear. As a first year hammock camper it took me some time to figure out exactly what I needed. I emailed and changed my order twice and both changes were met with a "no problem, we want you to have the right quilt for your needs" . Now that is customer service! And now I have the right quilt for my needs!
by MRk Painter – 25th Aug 2016
I liked my Burrow (2 oz extra down) so much I got this one for my wife. My brother and a friend also bought this quilt on my recommendation. The only problem is the modified quilts take a while to deliver. Mine has survived 1700 miles on the PCT and several mountaineering trips and is still in great shape. I nap under it at home.
by Downhill n Quincy – 24th Aug 2016
First time to use a quilt. Always used a sleeping bag as a quilt in my Hennessy. With the 20 barrow there is more room and so much easier to maneuver around.
Costumer service is also 5 stars. I emailed questions/ concerns and I got quick replies with knowledgeable answers. Thank you Hammock Gear.
by Stone Oliver – 18th Aug 2016
The quilt is sturdy, warm, fluffs well, compacts into the stuff bag well, and works nicely as a plain blanket if you get the snaps instead of the sewn footbox. I'm also amazed at how well waterproofed the stuff sack is. On an overnighter hike of the Twin Valley Trail, it poured constantly. I didn't have a pack liner and my bag got very wet on the inside but the quilt was dry as a bone. I highly recommend this product. It's also cheaper than comparable competition.
by BP – 15th Aug 2016
I purchased a Burrow 20 about 2 years ago, so impressed with the quality and usability, especially with the snap footbox. I am a ground sleeper more than hammock, so it was a bit of a gamble to buy, but it was the right decision. I slept under the stars twice last weekend on my insulated Klymit pad at I was the perfect temp. It was in the high 30's both nights. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars, is that the down is migrating toward the edges and there seems to be no real solution.
Response from Hammock Gear:
Hey BP! We're glad you like the gear. If you'd like us to check out the migration issue for you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
by Gonzo – 4th Aug 2016
Took these down to 30 degrees and I was toasty all night. I'm confident 20 or colder will be tolerable, maybe even comfortable. Gf got her under quilt with 2oz over stuff and said she had never been so warm while camping.
Our packs were so light that it felt weird, I had to throw in some coldies just to weigh my pack dow a little.
Worth the investment and much appreciated. Definitely recommend.
by D Martin – 3rd Aug 2016
Tried my burrow 20 for the first time this week. It was warm and the down had tons of loft. Quality is top notch as always!
by Carter in WNC – 28th Jul 2016
I'm quite tall (6'6) and the long/regular width quilt is plenty roomy for me, especially in the hammock. I've been singing its praises since I first used it - super compact, warm, affordable, adaptable to a ton of uses with the snaps. Bonus points for a quick response from customer service and the product arriving ahead of schedule. Can't recommend the Burrow enough.
by Lawrence – 27th Jul 2016
Have not used topquilt yet but I am impressed with the quality of sewing and material used.
by Mark. – 25th Jul 2016
This my first quilt and first down product since my cold weather mountain bag when I was in the Army. It always had feathers poking through and I looked like I had been fornicating with chickens when I got out of it (feathers all over me). The burrough 20 is fantastic and the customer service is great. The folks at Hammock Gear were very patient with me and understanding, even after I changed my order 3 times. No doubt one of the best companies in the business.
Rock on and pack light.

This review comes after 2 years of field testing. First, the guys and girls at HG are incredible. Before ordering I called and spoke with someone about the product specs. He asked what kind of environment/climates I might be using it for and really cared about where and how I might be hanging. Second, the product I received was extremely well made. After using this top quilt in the field for 2 years (Maine, Indiana, all over New Mexico) in a variety of environments and climate conditions, I am very pleased! Can't go wrong with these hand-made top quilts!
by Carlos – 5th Jul 2016
I had purchased the Incubator 20 for a new hammock setup replacing my tent/bag/pad combo I have been using for years. The Incubator kept me very warm and comfortable on a snow night/morning in the UP of Michigan early spring. I came back and picked up the Burro 20 and have used it twice so far, but I'm already digging the overall comfort, craftsmanship and space savings! Customer service was above and beyond, which I believe truly sets a company apart these days. Thanks Hammock Gear!!

I bought two 20 degree burrows, one to share, that has the snap footbox, and one for solo, with the sewn footbox. They accommodated my request to add 10 inche's to the width of the one with the snap foot box and still met my adventure deadline. The attention to detail, customer service, and quality of materials is unparalleled. I have had the incubator underquilt for years and love all of their products. They are lightweight, extremely warm, compressible , and durable.

Wow! what a thing of beauty, I love my new Burrow 20. This is the first time I have slept with out being to hot and clammy, I was comfortable all night because of the ventilation ability of this quilt. and what a bonus is it is so light and small when packed. Thank you for such a great product.

Just as other have stated before me, customer service is top priority for this company. Returning emails very quickly, and getting my order to me before my deadline.
My 12 year old and I spent 5 nights in the Great Smokey Mountains . We were able to shave a lots of weight by switching to burrows from sleeping bags ( we had your typical back yard bags that weigh more than baby elephant and are just as bulky) . We used a air pads for this trip,but I'm absolutely saving up for the under-quilts !
As it states in the care instructions one might notice a pungent odor while the burrow is damped or wet. Well in the Smokyes is rather humid and we did experienced the smell. However overall I am Happy Happy Happy with my purchase.
Thank you everyone in Hammock Gear !

I had this out and when you hold it up to the sunlight you can see very little loft in top of the bag. I have to question if it will keep you warm on 20* degree night
Response from Hammock Gear:
Good morning Mike, please contact us at email@example.com and we will take care of your issue.

Top notch quality and construction. This will be my go to topquilt for many years to come!
by Unknown – 17th Jun 2016
Let me start by saying these guys customer service is amazing... I had a million questions relating to switching to A quilt and they answered every one with patience ...
The quilt is amazing quality and I honestly A piece of functional art.
When they heard that I had A deadline my quilt arrived faster than I expected..
This is A great company and I cannot wait to order my summer bag from them as well.

These guys got my wife and I our Burrow 20 in a rush before our trip to Iceland. While in Iceland, we used a camper van with a heater but only wound up using the heat twice because the Burrow 20 kept us so warm. The bags were lightweight and fit in our carry on with no problems. We can't wait to use it on camping trips at home this winter. Many thanks.

I have a few different quilts, but was really looking for one to fit the gap between temps of 25-45, where I found myself too hot in a 0 degree, and too cold in a 40. I have loved my Hammock Gear under quilt, so I decided to get the Burrow 20. When it arrived I was happy with the loft, the quality of the build was perfect. It puts to shame one of the other brand quilts I have. The amount of fill in each baffle is perfect, and if you need more, you can get more, and you can even have them put it exactly where you want it. If you get cold feet, Hammock Gear will gladly put the extra fill where you need it, at the feet. The colors are awesome, the stitching is superb, and I am comfy and happy!
by Stephen – 6th Jun 2016
I purchased the Burrow 20 with two ounces of extra down as I get really cold when I sleep. I had a very short lead time as I didn't plan well. Everything was perfect. They shipped the product when I needed it and it was most comfortable. Excellent quality.
by Phillip Martin – 25th May 2016
I've been looking for a suitable top quilt for some time. At 6'5" I knew my options would be a bit more limited.
My Hammock Gear Burrow is perfect for me. Just long enough to give me a little extra room, light enough to drop a ton of weight and warm enough for most of the camping/backpacking/adventures I find myself on.
I've taking it on 2 trips so far, One in the late winter/early Spring and it was cozy, and one in the Late Spring/Early Summer - Just a tag of venting and temp was the best I've ever had!
by Dustin – 21st May 2016
This is excellent workmanship on the burrow 20 I recieved and HG went above and beyond for delivering the quilt when I needed it. Everything the other reviewers are saying is true. Great product.
by SquirrelMonkey – 17th May 2016
Had the Burrow 20 out for a great test this weekend. 3 day concert in which the temps dipped below 30 at night. Frost on the bag in the morning (no tarp deployed). I was so nice and warm. This was matched with incubator 20 on the bottom. Love this combo!! And the HG crew is amazing!! I can't say enough about this group of people. Bent over backwards, while jumping through flaming hoops! Thanks again HG for a great product!!
by Unknown – 13th May 2016
Goes right on and kept me warm all night. Very well made.
by Colorado Doug – 10th May 2016
I was reluctant to try a quilt but I just can't get a good nites sleep in a mummy. I use it for backpack hunting in Sept and Oct mostly at high altitude so I bought a Burrow 20 with 2 extra oz and the long version. I'm 5'-11" and wanted to be able to pull it over my head and it's a perfect fit for me. I made up my own string/straps using elastic cord which works fine. Only thing I wish they offered was their own easily detachable straps to keep it tucked under the mat. Mine work fine but do not detach easily. Overall though this has been probably my best decision ever equipment-wise as I now sleep WAY better in this quilt than any of my mummies! LOVE IT!!!!!!
Response from Hammock Gear:

I ordered the long and wide 20 degree burrow and could not be happier. I get very cold and this puppy kept me warm at some of the lower temperatures I've camped in. Customer service was amazing as they were able to get it to me before an upcoming trip that I wasn't planning on having the quilt available for, but it was! I'll definitely be ordering more.
by wade l. – 28th Apr 2016
VERY high quality construction! very warm! I got the wide and long version and it has plenty of room for me! I am 6'3" 225lbs.
by Al – 23rd Apr 2016
This quilt is exactly what the Dr. ordered. I have used it several times and have been very comfortable. The lowest temp so far has been 26 degrees and not a problem. This is my second order of quilts and I will not go any where else. Thank you all for a great product.
by Darren – 22nd Apr 2016
Finally got to give my HG quits a good run and they performed amazing! First off, the craftsmanship is second to none. Beautiful stitch work and materials... what else would you expect from made in the USA! Second, I didn't get to test the full temperature rating, but it did get in the low 40's/high 30's and I never once felt cold or uncomfortable. It would have a been a very cold night without them as I pulled my under quilt to the side to see what a difference it would make. Lastly, I'm 6'2" & 200 lbs... I ordered the Phoenix under quilt and Borrow standard length and width top quilt... the overlap between the 3/4 length bottom quilt and the top quilt with the buttons snapped was perfect. I'm so excited and happy with this purchase, I just order a full set for the wife.
by Codey – 8th Apr 2016
Excellent product exactly what I expected. It is lightweight warm and very compressible. I give it a 4 because my sleeping pad is wider than the narrow foot box.
by CJR – 6th Apr 2016
Initially, I purchased a 20* Incubator from Hammock Gear. It was so warm, so well-made, and customer service was so amazing that I didn't give it a second thought when I came time to purchase a top quilt. I purchased the wide version of the Burrow 20* with 3oz of over-stuff, and snaps instead of the sewn footbox. I choose Brick Red momentum 90 for the exterior and and charcoal grey momentum 90 interior. It feels fantastic. It took a few weeks to fulfill my order (although customer service offered to expedite the order if I needed it sooner for a trip). When the quilt arrived I was surprised by how small and light the package was. I removed the quilt and allowed it to loft for about 15 minutes. It fluffed up to about 3 to 3.5 inches in height. This sucker is WARM! The stitching is phenomenal. I am glad I got the WIDE version. I am not a huge guy, but my shoulders are wide and I like the extra room the WIDE offers. I feel that the wide version allows me to sleep on my side easier, without causing gaps or cold spots.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with the product, the service and the craftsmanship. Thank you, HG!!!
by Jim Stadler – 5th Apr 2016
Full disclosure. I haven't camped with this yet. I hung my hammock under my back porch for two nights though. So the Burrow 20 and a JrB 0 degree under quilt and I was golden. Of course the temp never dropped below 40 so proof of low temp warmth will have to wait till next winter. The materials and construction are outstanding. Nice to the touch. After receiving this I think a HG under quilt is in my near future.
by Larry Miller – 2nd Apr 2016
Very pleased with my Burrow 20, workmanship is excellent. Haven't had a chance to really use it yet. I could not believe how quickly I received it.
by Unknown – 23rd Mar 2016
Incubator 20 & Burrow 20 / March 19, 20, 2016 . The high was 56, the low was 22 reaching in the low teens with winds up to 10 miles per hour , location, Harriman State Park NY. Elevation was 1300 feet. As the title say's: warm as a bug in a rug. The best decision I have made to upgrade my backpacking gear. It's true what they say and In this case , you do get what you pay for, thanks to Guys and Gals at hammock gear, they know there stuff. Thanks again.

My wife and I got into hammocking last year. We first got the ENO quilts and in two out of three trips in only got to 45 and my wife froze!! I saved and purchased two incubator 20's and two burrow 20,s. We took them down to Escalante Utah for two nights last week. I lied to my wife and said the low was only going to be 40 to get her to go. Truth is it got down to 15!! She didn't believe me it got that cold because she was so warm!!! These quilts are amazing!!! The customer service is top notch!!! Thank you Hammock Gear! My wife loves them even more and wants to go again this weekend!!
by Unknown – 17th Mar 2016
I love my burrow 20. I spent last weekend on the SHT where we had at least a foot of snow on the ground. My tarp wound up blowing down and I still stayed warm. I ordered the standard length with standard fill and stayed warm in 28 degrees.
by reid – 15th Mar 2016
burrow 20 degree, argon 90 inside and outside,standard length, wide width,2 oz overfill, 1 oz in sewn footbox,I told them to put the other oz where they thought best.i'm 5'10''tall and 150 lbs,i like a little extra to pull around me. talked to Harry and he was great.. all i can say is JOLLY FEATHER GOODNESS
by Armond – 22nd Feb 2016
recently purchased this quilt, after a lot of internal debate and back-and-forth on a quilt vs a down sleeping bag. Glad I went with the Burrow.
bought the large-wide version (bigger guy) so I have plenty of extra material. Crawling into it immediately warms me up very well. It wraps and tucks plenty, and the quality is top-notch. The small things - such as the reinforced "V" where it opens up, and the clips to keep it attached to a airmat - are really nice touches that show the design is thought out and shaped by actual use
This matches perfectly with my underquilt - an Incubator 20.
color selection was spot on
zero negative about this quilt - another great product. Sort of expected it from the quality of my Incubator - was definitely pleasantly surprised when the Burrow arrived as good as the previous quilt.
by Paul and Kate – 22nd Feb 2016
My wife and I ordered two Burrow 20's with an extra ounce of fill. One in burnt orange and the other in bright yellow. Both colours are great. We were swayed to go with HG due to all the rave reviews and I have to agree with them all. The quality is exceptional. We won't be trying our quilts out for a few weeks yet. Our first outing will be a 2 week hike in the central Australian desert. We were very impressed with the service. Our quilts arrived in 3 and a half weeks to Tasmania which is pretty good going. Nice work HG.

Its started to warm up now where I live. I have a trip coming up soon though. It looks great and so light
by M ike Taylor – 10th Feb 2016
I have 4 quilts from HG, which should tell you something. They are fantastic quilts. My focus here is on the other end of the product....service. In a nutshell, my daughter did not like the 'feel' of the fabric. of all things. The kind folks at HG allowed me to reorder with the 'smoooooooooooth' fabric and gave me a full refund on the exchange. Now my daughter has a smile from ear-to-ear as she absolutely loves the warmth, comfort, functionality and especially the feel of the quilt. Great products, great service...why buy elsewhere?
by Ross – 10th Feb 2016
The Burrow 20 works great with my Incubator. It took me a while to realize that I need to snug up the Incubator's secondary suspension nice and tight. Once I did that, the Burrow seals off cold from above and the sides. I've had it out to 24 degrees and feel certain it can go colder. I like the snap at the head end. I wonder about the placement of the drawstring, though; it always seems to dangle across my face. Still, I am glad I went with HG and would never consider anything else.
by Mix – 7th Feb 2016
This is the 2nd burrow I have now. This one I chose long and wide with an ounce of overfill to take me to approx 15°. I have used this nightly for a couple of months now and simply love it
I also have a burrow 40 for summer that I have used nightly for over a year. I have been sleeping in a hammock now since August 2014, and have no desire to go back to my king size bed.
Hammock Gear is simply the best in materials, stitching, and overall quality as I believe I have looked at every tq, uq in the market available.
by T.J. – 5th Feb 2016
After several cold weather trips into the back country with my My wife who already had the burrow 20 and never complained about the cold I finally ordered my own and after the first night I was so happy I did the quality of the product is top notch, wish I would have had it years ago. Highly recommend. Thanks again

The Burrow 20 was the last piece of my hammock “kit” to arrive last week. It was added to an Incubator 40 with 2 oz. of overfill which should bring it down to about 30 degrees. The day that it arrived the predicted lows here was 21 degrees so why not test it right off the bat. I loaded the UQ and TQ on and in a Dream Hammock Dangerbird with the over cover in place. I do have but did not use an UQ protector during the test. I was sleeping in a alpaca cap and socks and a waffle top and waffle bottom. The wind was about 5 mph from the northeast. The quilts did their job as expected. I could feel a general coolness on my back until the wind went calm about 2:30. I suspect that the UQ protector would have taken care of that because as soon as the wind calmed I was comfortable the rest of the night. An incubator 20 would have also taken care of the coolness. It stayed 21 degrees for about 5 hours. Topsides were very comfortable and I expect the Burrow 20 would have handled temps to the teens with no problem. Several years ago, I picked up a Big Agnes Horse Thief for an over bag. It will be interesting to see how the Borrow 20 does in that for ground camping. Fit and finish on both quilts is excellent and communication from the folks at hammock gear was right on. Thanks for the great service.

After using HG under quilts and my first burrow 20 for a year now, I knew I had to buy another for my wife. She loves it. Warm and easy to move around in. Packs down to nothing. Excellent quality product. On line Order to house in less than 2 weeks!
by Joseph Roberts – 25th Jan 2016
I purchased the burrow 20 along with the incubator 20. I finally had a chance to give them a go this weekend. The temps were about 22 degrees with a wind chill of 17. These quilts performed amazingly well. I woke up a couple of times during the night because i got to hot and had to actually let some cool air in. I think the rating is as others have said, to be actually on the conservative side. i can't wait to push these quilts to the limit!!!
by Kyle – 25th Jan 2016
Took my Incubator 20 and Burrow 20, each w/ 2 oz. Overstuff, out this weekend and was toasty and warm down to the -8°F temps we experienced. VERY happy with my purchase!!
by M.C. Eli – 23rd Jan 2016
I didn't plan appropriately, asked them to have it to me in 7 days and they delivered with a smile, at no extra cost. I still have trouble processing the awesome. The quilt is very well made, and warm, I used it three nights in 30-20 degree temps in my 3 season tent. I was warm and comfortable. I had the foot box sewn, and the drawstring at the neck works well to hold the heat in. I'm 6'2" and I went with the regular length and don't regret it, I saved a few oz, and I don't sleep with it over my head anyway.
by Chuck – 20th Jan 2016
Camped on Winding Stair mtn. mid January on the Ouachita Trail, temperature down to 15 degrees with blowing sleet and snow. Stayed nice and toasty. Slept like a baby. Have the Burrow 20 with 4 extra ounces and the Incubator Zero. Would highly recommend these products to anyone. Even my toes stayed warm. Love it, Love it, Love it.!
by Hiker Mike – 20th Jan 2016
Paired with the Phoenix 20 UQ, first night staying in 27 degree weather with snow falling. I kept my base layer on which was a mistake. I woke up sweating it was so warm. The only issues I have are needing to find better socks (where the Phoenix isn't full length and that was expected) and concern about the snaps. The snaps are so hard to separate I worry about tearing the material if I use them too much. As some one who lives out of his car and moves often packing light for both the trail and in life using the quilt as blanket at home was the reason for the snap option.
by Max Grow – 13th Jan 2016
I had initially ordered the Incubator 20 Bottom Quilt and when it came in I loved it so much I had to order a top quilt to go with it. I decided on the Burrow 20 wide and long with 2 oz of over fill to ensure it would keep me warm in the colder nights. I went out over New Years and got a few nights to bring in the New Year hanging and let me tell you, I was so nice and toasty warm, not stuck the way i was used to being in a dummy bag. Everything worked perfectly. Weather called for a low of 21 both nights and I would say it was every bit that cold until I climbed in my gear. Amazing product, amazing workmanship, amazing customer service. They will get all of my business if I ever need anything else. Good Work Guys!!
by Allan – 9th Jan 2016
Have had the chance to spend a few nights out in the low 20s. Kept nice and toasty warm. The loft on this quilt is amazing.if I spring for a lighter bag, 40 or 50 degree... It will be HG Burrow. Great product and customer service.
by OlcountryGal – 23rd Dec 2015
Wonderful customer service, helped me get the right product. This is my first top quilt I have used it once and it preformed better than expected. Ya'll keep doing what your doing.
by patrick – 18th Dec 2015
First night near freezing in a hammock and this quilt was great. FIVE STARS WILL BUY AGAIN A++++
